Samsung already offers a Exynos-powered Chromebook 2, but the company has recently introduced the same machine with Intel Celeron N2840 Bay Trail processor.
The new Samsung Chromebook 2 comes with a $249 price tag, and is available for pre-orders with an expected shipping next week. The company lists the shipping estimates to be 10 to 14 business days.
The notebook measures 11.4″ x 8.6″ x 0.66″ and weighs 2.65 pounds. There’s 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, and an 11.6-inch display sporting a resolution of 1366 by 768 pixels. Other features include Intel HD Graphics, Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi 802.11 ac, a HDMI port, 1 USB 2.0 and 1 USB 3.0 port.
It’s almost similar to the other Chromebook 2, except one important thing. Samsung has introduced a “Get Help” button in the latest Chromebook 2. The button is similar to Amazon May support service, and pressing it connects you to a Samsung support representative over a video chat. Unlike Amazon service which is available 24/7, Samsung’s representatives will be available to help the users from Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. PT. Once connected, you can ask the representative anything about the Chrome OS or troubleshoot any problem you may face with the notebook or the OS.
To enable the feature, users must sign in to their device, type “Chrome:help” in the address bar, and download the update. This should bring up the Get Help button at the bottom left corner of the screen.Filed Under: Laptops
